Does chronic asthma prevent you from enjoying activities such as sports, exercise, shopping – even sleeping?
For some, severe asthma symptoms such as wheezing,
allergies, and chronic asthma attacks are crippling. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas is the first hospital in North Texas to offer new hope to severe asthma sufferers with a groundbreaking procedure called Bronchial Thermoplasty.
Unlike medications, it goes to the source of the problem, using heat to reduce the thickness of smooth muscle in the airways and is the first non-drug treatment for severe persistent asthma. The result is improved, long-term relief, including decreases in severe attacks, asthma-related ER visits, and severe asthma symptoms.
Bronchial Thermoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure performed in three outpatient visits for people age 18 and older.

Eligibility for Bronchial Thermoplasty recipients is determined through medical screening. The Asthma Management Program
at Texas Health Dallas can help determine whether you are a potential candidate and coordinate appropriate screening.
